After trailing 52-38 with four minutes left in the game, Pioneer completed a 20-4 run that culminated in a game-winning 3-pointer by Jibreel Hussein in the closing seconds of the game.
Hussein’s 3-pointer put Pioneer (9-3, 4-1 SEC) up by one point, and the Pioneers nearly stole the Skyline inbound on the next play. Skyline recovered the ball with enough time for Travonn Banks to take a potential game-winning shot that missed. Hussein was fouled on the rebound, and made a free throw to seal the Southeastern Conference Red win.
“We stopped trapping, went full court man-to-man, and Jibreel just went crazy,” Pioneer coach Rex Stanczak said. “He carried us at the end with three 3-pointers.”
Ethan Spencer contributed 13 points, including seven points in the late-game run, while 6-foot-7 junior center Tristan Wilson led Skyline (4-7, 1-3 SEC) with 18 points.
Huron’s Ernest Johnson and Demetrius Sims both scored 10 as Huron (6-4, 4-1 SEC Red) outscored Monroe 18-10 in the third quarter.
Nate Daniels led Monroe with 16 points, and Devante Crittenden scored eight.
Jackson Lamb scored a game-high 26 points as Temperance Bedford overcame a 14-7 first quarter deficit. Saline (7-5, 1-4 SEC White) Reece Dils and Max Recknagel each scored a team-high 13 points.

Mathias Donat scored 38 points for Washtenaw Christian (7-4), going 16 for 24 from the field, including 3 for 5 from the 3-point line.
